romney plans to let wall street run wild again but he's going to bring down the hammer on sesame street. it makes perfect sense. virginia, we can't afford to double down on the same old top down economic policies that caused this mess in the first place. we cannot afford another round of tax cuts for the wealthy. we can't afford to gut our investments in education or clean energy or research and technology. we can't afford to roll back regulations on wall street banks or oil companies or insurance companies. that is not a jobs plan. it's not a plan to grow our economy. it's sure not a plan to strengthen our middle class. we have been there, we have tried that. we're not going back, we are moving forward. we have got a different view about how we create jobs and prosperity in this country. this country doesn't just succeed when just a few are doing well at the top. it succeeds when the middle class gets bigger. our economy doesn't grow from the top down, it grows from the middle out. we don't believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country, but we do believe in opportunity. w
of top down economics. one of the main reasons we have this crisis is because big banks on wall street were allowed to make big bets with other people's money, and now governor romney wants to roll back the rules we put in place to stop that behavior. that's not going to happen. that is not going to happen. one of the main reasons record sur plass under bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars it and two tax cuts on a credit card and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. we are not going to let this country fall backward, not now, not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train 2 million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. [ cheers and applause ] we need to cut our oil imports in half, create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we ne

think we should build the economy from the middle class out like the president does or the top down like mitt romney does? >> credit ben labolt, thanks for joining us today. >> thanks. >> we say good morning to our tuesday political power panel. leah henderson, ted devine, senior strategist for al gore and john kerry. eugene robinson wrote in "the washington post" the challenges facing mitt romney in this debate, but going specifically saying romney's task is more difficult. for the umpteenth time he has to introduce himself to the american people and erase all the impressions of the mitt romney we met earlier and reveal a coherent person, one voters can imagine as a leader. is this debate more romney against himself? critics paint him displaying this flaccid leadership. >> he has to present himself as a president who would represent all americans. he said that several times. he's practicing that debate line. here again, even when he engages with that comment, it reminds people of that 47% remark. you see him over the last couple of days. i think it was today there is an interview in the
growth rate in 2010. the reason why that rate is going down is because people are giving up and dropping out of the jobs -- the job market. so i think that the essential argument from the romney campaign is dead-on. and we're not better. we're still down net jobs. we still have more unemployed people on a per capita basis on a specific basis than we did when he first took office. i think a lot of these arguments are very valid. we're not going to do it by giving money to the solyndras of is the world. >> i just want to point out there are conflicting numbers and views regarding what you just said about the numbers about people who are just not looking for jobs anymore. >> no, they're not. that's a point as well there is 23 million people who have not been employed or who are now taking the looking at part-time employment. >> tara, let's -- >> i want to -- i do want to dive in to the numbers. and i would love to come back to the story about the clean energy and green jobs, because it's one of the bright spots in our economy. but what is not true that that the unemployment rate decreased b
it no matter what, but it would be so expensive that it would be cost prohibitive. >> governor romney also brought up the issue of out of work college grads. listen to what he said. >> what we're seeing right now is, in my view, a trickle down government approach which has government thinking it can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams. it's not working. the truth is that 50% of college graduates this year can't find work. >> is that accurate? >> well, again, this is one where it depends how you're defining the terms. 50% is not a number people have, but 53.6% the ap found a couple weeks ago is the number of college grads who are unemployed or underemployed. underemployed, key term there. doesn't mean they're out of work, but it could mean people are coming out of college with really great degrees, a lot of education, and are working at jobs that don't meet that. that could be anything from, you know, somebody with a fancy diploma working at mcdonald's to somebody with a business education working as an assistant, not quite up to the level of what they have studied in sch
